My friend Gay left these for me to read and return. I couldn't put them down, and recommend heartily. I am currently re-reading Peter May "Lockdown" which I can also recommend if you like suspenseful books.
Finally, another gift from me, to me, which I needed as I had thrown the old linen jelly bag away as it had gone fousty, and I no longer have a suitable beam to hang my jelly bag from. Just one long rafter-type beam in the kitchen and not situated over any work surface I can put a bowl for the juice. This will work a treat. I have been busy picking lots of blackberries to turn into jam or jelly, so come September, will get cracking.
I am feeling rather down in the dumps at the moment, mainly because I scarcely slept at all last night, worrying about Keith, and also Theo who has decided that food isn't for him and has lost a lot of weight. I managed to get him to eat better today by chopping up some chicken very finely, but he is booked in to the vet's tomorrow to get his mouth checked (that won't go down well with him) but I am 95% certain he is going to need his teefs cleaned and perhaps one or more removed. Another £400 bill I can ill afford.
We saw the PD nurse again today and Keith's medication has been tweeked again, so let's hope that works. The Physio said something which really upset me this week (I'm sure he didn't mean to - it was a realistic statement) but I think there are sometimes when things are best just thought rather than voiced.
Billy Blue-Eyes - I took a photo of what little remains of Nantygwyllt House, the very grand one which Shelley wanted to buy after staying at his uncle's house nearby, Cwm Elan. Will put an Elan Valley post up at the weekend.
